4:37 am
seeing any delays as of yet. bay bridge also a good alternate. northbound 101 eastbound construction, eastbound 92 roadwork, as well. back to you guys. >> thank you. authorities know a lot more about that oregon mall shooter now but what drove him to kill two people and take his own life on tuesday is still not clear. we're learning more about the victims, as well. and we have more. >> reporter: while the motive is a mystery we know a lot more about the victim. >> always gave me stuff and everybody else, everybody before her. >> reporter: this is the stepson of 54-year-old cindy yuille, one of two people killed when shots rang out. a coworker finds it difficult making sense of such a senseless tragedy. >> cindy was an amazing hospice nurse. she spent other life helping

4:43 am
but mostly clear skies to start. so it is a frosty start to the day. many of the valleys going to see frost this morning getting up. by the afternoon should be mostly sunny skies but still it is going to be cool. and then there's more rain ahead. in fact, looks like a very active weather pattern as we head in toward the next few days, throughout the weekend and well into next week. temperatures outside right now right near freezing in santa rosa at 33. 36 livermore. 37 concord. 41 san jose. a cold front yesterday brought showers, lots of sunshine behind that now but the temperatures will be staying cool at least for today. and then it looks like as we get into tomorrow maybe some more rain. but for today a good travel day. watch out for fog into the central valley. high country, they have some fresh snow up there. good day to get up there and enjoy and more storms on the way to bring some more snow in that direction. the next one moving onshore still skirting the coastline. i think we have a chance of a few showers toward friday. doesn't look like a major weathermaker and then that
4:44 am
sweeps by. but as we get into the latter part of saturday and sunday more storms once again. temperatures today cool, 54 milpitas, 55 san jose, 54 pacifica. east bay temperatures also only into the 50s. and as you head inside the bay, maybe one of the warmer spots, 57 oakland,55 san francisco. chance of showers tomorrow, better chance of rain late saturday and into sunday. then looks like showers on and off into next week. let's check the roads with gianna. >> thank you very much, lawrence. we are following a fatal accident along the peninsula. if you plan to take the san mateo bridge this morning, westbound san mateo bridge one lane is completely shut down. a two-car crash was reported around 3:30. chp arrived on the scene and one person did die in the accident. so again that right lane is completely shut down until they clear this out of the way and for the investigation. now, we are starting to see quite a backup as you approach the scene. again, this is west 92 towards
4:45 am
the peninsula side. use the dumbarton bridge as an alternate. that's your best bet. there is construction on the dumbarton bridge right now. here's a live look at the san mateo bridge. so this is as you come out of the eastbound -- or the east side out of hayward past the toll plaza towards the midspan there but again once you get close to where this accident scene is where you have a lot of trouble spots and a lot of brake lights so jumping back over to our maps right now again the dumbarton bridge is probably your best bet to get around this mess. now, this is construction north 101 along the peninsula connecting over to the san mateo bridge. you might see some delays there, as well. also the bay bridge is look good. no delays right now. that would be a great alternate. and mass transit, as well. bart is right on time. ace, muni, caltrain, ferries, no delays to report as of right now. elsewhere everything is quiet. not a lot going on throughout the rest of the bay area. 880 looking good both directions, no delays. just some construction on that northbound side but looks like that should be cleared within the next 15 minutes. that's traffic. back to you. one of syria's strongest
